Property DetailsLocation Roydon Cottage is set along Old High Road and is within an easy walk of the town centre of Diss, a bustling market town with schooling to sixth form, excellent shops, sporting and social facilities, and good transport links with a mainline rail service to London Liverpool Street in just 90 minutes. A little further afield is Bury St Edmunds (25 miles), Norwich (25 miles) and there are links to the A11 which is now dual carriageway all the way to Newmarket where it joins the A14 corridor giving access to Cambridge within an hour or so. This house combines a good setting with good access to facilities.
The Property This Georgian home is surprisingly not Listed despite it having a plethora of period features and it is pleasing to note that the sash windows retain their original wooden shutters. It oozes character and has a relaxed feel despite its elegant exterior. The vendors have made significant improvements over the years, putting their own stamp on the property without compromising the integrity of the property and the addition of the contemporary garden/dining room is an inspired choice and a nod to modernity. The kitchen features a large Aga and is supplemented in the summer months with an electric cooker. There are ample storage cupboards and the large utility room with original brick floor has space for domestic appliances and doubles up as a hobby and boot room. From here a door leads through into a one bedroom annexe with shower room and sitting room, ideal for teenagers or elderly relatives. Leading off the central hallway are steps down to the cellar. The first floor has been reconfigured to provide three bedrooms and a family bathroom but could easily be converted back to provide four bedrooms if required.
Outside The property is approached via a shingled driveway which leads up to the double cartlodge. There is ample parking and to the side of the garage are some raised beds. There is a large store room with scope for conversion into living accommodation and a useful tool room. A picket fence and gate divide the parking area from the gardens which are dog proof and contain large shrubs and trees to the boundaries. Within the garden is a shaded seating area and garden shed.
Services Mains water and electricity are connected to the property. Oil fired boiler providing heat to radiators and hot water. Private drainage.
